Gov­er­nors in short sup­ply at schools

Herald Express - - News -

THE need for mem­bers of the pub­lic to be­come school gov­er­nors has never been stronger as schools face an in­creas­ingly chal­leng­ing cli­mate.

That is the mes­sage from Gov­er­nors for Schools as the or­gan­i­sa­tion launches a cam­paign to en­cour­age di­ver­sity on gov­ern­ing boards across Devon and Corn­wall.

Gov­er­nors for Schools is an ed­u­ca­tional char­ity that con­nects peo­ple in­ter­ested in be­com­ing a school gover­nor with schools, acad­e­mies, and col­leges. Gov­er­nors come from a va­ri­ety of back­grounds, have var­ied in­ter­ests and dif­fer­ent skillsets, but are united in a de­sire to im­prove out­comes for chil­dren and their com­mu­nity through the do­na­tion of their time and skills.

Gov­er­nors for Schools in the last year placed 135 mem­bers of the pub­lic into schools across Devon and Corn­wall. The fig­ure con­trasts with the 1,758 reg­is­tered va­can­cies across the re­gion.
